Birth Place: Athens, Greece BFA, Open Major, 1983 California College of Arts, Oakland California For the last 5 years I've been working on the Sculpture and painting Series, " Look! Reincarnation exists, I want to come back. The painting studies reflect the shapes of the sculptures, The Series is based on my personal experience of survival and renewal, which I feel is a universal theme and story many share.
The shapes in the paintings are from the sculptures series titled," Look ! Reincarnation Exists, I want to come back " . The shapes of the sculptures are reflected in these latest studies of Acrylic on paper for larger paintings on canvas. Layered over top of one another with solid and transparent colors. Grouped together in random patterns with bright acrylic colors on paper. The sculptures represent flight and so do the paintings with the soaring shapes painted across the paper.
